Health Information Technology (HIT), while providing significant benefits to patients, is also associated with safety risks. Remediation of the HIT risk often competes with other clinically important initiatives for attention and resources. This presentation describes an HIT Safety governance model coupled with a rapid, data-driven framework for assessing the degree of patient risk, enabling prioritization of elimination of significant patient safety risks.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Understanding of a framework for determining the level of risk associated with a Health Information Technology Safety issue
